i used these wood veneer strips stuck onto cardstock, both of which i bought from Daiso aeons ago. i went back to find more of the veneer tape, but they only had the fake versions :( if you squint, you can see my disastrous attempts at using a paper punch on it. sure it worked, but i remember panicking over teamchat (HI TEAMMIDS!) back then whether i ruined my expensive paper punch on it XD consensus was, i did :( i've sharpened the punch since, but it never worked quite the same again....so to anyone who's thought about it, well, paper is also made of wood, but DON'T DO IT XD (my logic FAILED ME)
hrm. doesn't quite work :( even though i like it!!
so i did something stupid. i PAINTED IT.
i really should have left it alone.
or should i just use the original plain flooring? opinions anyone? would really appreciate the help! deadline's next week AHHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh *runs wildly arms flailing*
oh, i forgot to write about the tiles, someone asked on flickr which then reminded me to include it (though i did put it in the material list here http://snowfern-clover.blogspot.com/p/challenge.html )
edited the image (courtesy of http://www.flickr.com/photos/zooboing/ please read his licencing terms) using Inkscape, printed at Xorex onto glossy sticker paper, scored it then stuck it in place. :)
